To this, Mr Musk was quick to reply. “Hot take: not everything AOC says is accurate,” he said. 

Notably, Mr Musk’s online spat with Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez began when she took a dig at the new Twitter owner over the blue tick fee. “Lmao at a billionaire earnestly trying to sell people on the idea that “free speech” is actually an $8/mo subscription plan,” she wrote. 

Replying to her, Mr Musk then reiterated his stance on his blue tick fee and quipped, “Your feedback is appreciated, now pay $8”.
